On July 30, 2020 MTS announced creation in Moscow of the so-called supernetwork integrating mobile and fixed connection. The operator calls the project the first in Russia and states that it will help to accelerate connection of new subscriber and to improve quality control of services.

Besides, should connection of base stations to the general network will accelerate and an implementation time of the next generations of communication will decrease.
